Single Premiere: Dizzy Bats - "Alone"

If you’re seeking solace during these times of isolation, let us recommend NYC-based rock group Dizzy Bats & their latest single, “Alone,” to lift your spirits. While the lyrics describe the mundane & emotionally draining daily routine of quarantine, this track wonderfully juxtaposes the subject with an energizing rock melody.  The song begins with isolated vocals & precise guitar progressions before the full band kicks in. Before you know it, the listener is sucked into the hook’s crescendo and anthemic chorus with spurts of electrifying guitar riffs. As the single builds, so does a noticeable frustration in the vocals from Connor Frost...

New Single Review: Homesafe - "Coming Clean"

One of Chicago's finest rock groups right now, Homesafe, blessed us with a new single this Friday. This track, "Coming Clean," sounds like a perfect upbeat prelude to new material on the horizon.  The track begins with the rhythmic guitar panning back & forth between speakers before introducing vocalist, Ryan Rumchaks. As it progresses, a bit quicker now with the illusion of an impending chorus as they gradually slow it down, but instead kicks off back into another addicting verse. Something I often admire about Homesafe is how they always switch up the structure of their songs. Now that we've been teased plenty, the drums crescendo into...

New Single Review: "Icarus" by Bleacher Days

New Single Review: "Icarus" by Bleacher Days

After a few years of reflection, the pop punk group, Bleacher Days, announced their comeback with an exciting new sound.  Mentioned in their Instagram post about a month ago, they expressed their desire to branch out & not be confined to just one genre. Their latest single, "Icarus," was the shining example of a dynamic project they had withheld for years because of this concern. Very few people listen to only one genre of music, so why should artists be restricted to just one certain sound? Bleacher Days proved to us with this single that they can do anything they want. "Icarus" is...
